Monthly Meal Plan #1

It's time to do my monthly shopping trip so in my planning I have put together a meal plan and thought that I would share it with all of you.

                         Monthly Meal Plan #1

Lasagna, green beans, rolls and applesauce
Fried chicken, rice and veggie
Sausage Gravy over Biscuits
Ham Loaf, scalloped potatoes and a veggie
Cheeseburger and fries
Chili and cornbread
Baked Cornflake Chicken, Scalloped Corn, salad and applesauce
Vanilla Waffles and bacon
Crock Pot Cheesey Beef & Mac
Roast Beef, mashed potatoes, gravy and Veggie Casserole
Hot dogs in crescent rolls with Onion rings
Baked Steak, mashed potatoes and a veggie
Meatballs and spaghetti with salad and breadsticks
Hot and Sweet Chicken, rice and veggie
Breakfast Casserole and toast
Sloppy Joes, macaroni and cheese and peas
Bubble Pizza
Meatloaf, scalloped potatoes and veggie
Pepper Steak without Tomatoes, mashed potatoes and veggie
Breakfast Burritos
Oven Baked Burgers with Oven Fries
Chicken and dumplings with mashed potatoes and a veggie
Hamburger Gravy, mashed potatoes or fries, salad and green beans
Homemade pizza

That should be about 25 meals which works for us. We go to my parent's on Sundays for a family dinner plus I allowed for 1 take-out meal for the month.
Hope you can find something new or interesting from my list.
I know that I really enjoy looking at all of your menus in hopes of finding something a little different to bring to our table.
Hope you all have a great weekend!

I don't even know what we are having for tonight! You're amazing and a great role model for your children in so many,many ways.

Wow--once you get it all figured out do you pretty much stick to it?? Hope you have a great weekend...come say hi. :)

I do pretty much stick with it because I have all the ingredients stocked up in my cupboards. I don't go in order but when I have made a meal then I cross it off the list and then choose another for the next dinner.
Works pretty good and saves me money by planning ahead.

I am impressed, great job!
We need to start planning and eating at home. Going out every night gets old, but we also go to the grocery store. Would be shocked I'm sure at the money we could save.

Going to check out some of your ideals.

I usually make a weekly menu but a monthly would even be better. I am def going to try your pepper steak without tomatoes. My guys don't really care for tomatoes either so this would be perfect.Thanks so much for sharing your great recipes:)

Jessica, you are for sure and certain one of those talented and gifted people. It must take some doing to organize a monthly plan. I'm wondering what happens if something unexpected happens in the meantime...does that chuck a spanner in the works for you? Would be interesting to hear from you about that. I'm interested to know. Kind regards, Anita.

Pamela...I hope to share that with all of you soon. I hate to post a recipe without a picture to show you so as soon as I get it made I will pass it on.

Thanks Jessica. I know I would like to have a picture also of the
Crock Pot Beefy Mac.
My mom made something like that
when we were kids growing up in
C-burg WV. Of course we did not have a crock pot then! :=)
You are such a good cook.
I know it is the WV in you.
